The Future of Warrendale

Later today, the Detroit Works Project is scheduled to release its final plan for the adaptive reuse of the depopulated parts of Detroit. The Detroit Free Press published a summary of it, which is complete with a few maps.

Under this plan, the Warrendale neighborhood should see more small-scale community gardens and pocket parks that will take the place of vacant homes in the neighborhood. They also propose a few smaller ponds to capture rainwater and keep it from overtaxing our sewage system.

The report from The Detroit Free Press is available here.

Update @ 8:37 p.m. The Detroit News reports that the Kresge Foundation is going to support this initiative with $150 million. Their report is available here.
